THE CITY COUNCIL OF ORONO ORDAINS:
SECTION 1. Section 78-921 shall be amended by striking text to read as follows:
Sec. 78-921. – Conditional Use Permit ReviewReview upon neighbors petition.
The City hereby reserves the right to inspect the premises where a Conditional Use permit has been issued, after receiving permission from the property owner or receiving the appropriate court order, to ensure compliance with the provisions of this Ordinance or and conditions imposed. Conditional use permits shall not be subject to periodic council review for the purpose of change or revocation unless such a review is one of the conditions of the original permit or unless the actual land use is determined to be in violation of the terms of the permit. ; however, upon petition of 75 percent or more of the adjacent property owners (defined here as those whose property lies within 1,000 feet of the property subject to the conditional use permit), the council shall hold a public hearing on the continuation of the permit. The council shall determine, after such public hearing, whether the continuation of the conditional use in question is consistent with the health, safety and general welfare of the residents of the city. The council may, after such petition and hearing, continue the conditional use permit unchanged; approve a new permit with such additional conditions as may be necessary to protect health, safety or general welfare; or terminate the existing conditional use permit. Upon termination of a conditional use permit, the council may allow the former conditional use permit to continue for such period not in excess of one year as may be required to provide time to move or otherwise relocate in a zone where such use is permitted.
SECTION 2. EFFECTIVE DATE: This ordinance shall take effect immediately upon its passage and publication.
